A Parent & Their Acceleration Academies Experience


At Acceleration Academies, a parent’s experience with our program is just as important as that of a Graduation Candidate (GC). At our Miami-Dade Acceleration Academies (MDAA) location, GC Roger M. enrolled in February of 2018 and recently crossed the finish line and earned his high school diploma.

We took some time to sit down with his father and ask him what his experience at Miami-Dade Acceleration Academies was like. Here’s what he had to say!

What was your son doing before MDAA?

Before enrolling, my son was sitting around depressed because he felt as if his dreams were drifting away.

Describe your experience with Miami-Dade Acceleration Academies (MDAA).

I was pleasantly surprised with the patience and structured instruction of the instructors. It was a seamless transition for my son. He continued to be engaged and motivated at a time where he probably should have been discouraged.

How has MDAA impacted your son since enrolling?

The experience and tutelage paved the way for my son to attend several institutions of higher learning of which he ultimately chose Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University.

What do you think he liked most about MDAA?

There were several things about MDAA that I liked but the best thing was the flexibility. He was able to go at his own pace without the pressure of keeping up with his peers.
